How To Choose an Attorney for Your Case
The attorney you choose to represent you could very well impact the outcome of your case. Do your homework.
If you have the opportunity to call a number of local law firms, we suggest asking specific questions about your case in order to get a feel for how that attorney would handle your situation. It is also important that you select the most experienced legal counsel you can afford.
More Experience Doesn’t Mean More Expensive
When faced with a serious legal matter, it is natural to want to hire the best attorney you can afford. Unfortunately, many people perceive that they cannot afford to hire the most reputable and experienced attorneys to represent them.
Although some law firms capitalize on their success and make it difficult for many clients to afford them, the E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy law firm has consistently offered the legal services of it’s highly talented attorneys at affordable fee levels.
In the case of a personal injury, medical malpractice or wrongful death lawsuit, expect most law firms to charge what is called a “contingency fee.” A contingency fee is an industry standard that means the law firm is not paid unless the case is won. When the case is successful, they receive a predetermined percentage of a settlement or jury award.
So, in personal injury cases, you can afford to hire the most experienced attorney to represent you.
